Bosko (uncredited)


Bosko ice skates on a frozen pond, while his dog Bruno chases behind him, barking happily. Bruno accidentally falls through the ice. The canny canine allows Bosko to think he has drowned before finally popping out of a hollow tree and barking out a greeting. Bosko is momentarily angry, but quickly forgives him. The fun ends when the two of them discover a baby abandoned in the snow. Bosko takes the infant to his cabin. The unlovable bundle does nothing but bawl and bawl, and finally infuriates Bruno when it declares its reason: it's crying for the Carolines. Undaunted, Bosko finally finds a way to make the crying baby laugh--but not without a near-drowning of his own. Written by J. Spurlin

Big-Hearted Bosko has its own Looney Tunes charm
10 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Since the previous reviewer spoiled the beans of Big-Hearted Bosko, I'll just say that while yes, not much happens in plot, I actually found all the skating, finding the baby, and trying to entertain baby to keep him from crying all the time pretty entertaining myself. Having reviewed a whole bunch of Warner Bros. Bosko cartoons now, I have to give props to music director Frank Marsales for making many of these usually musical shorts as entertaining as they can be. While I grew up on the more gag-filled Looney Tunes post-Tex Avery, these trying-to-top-or-at-least-be-equal-to-Steamboat Willie musical efforts of the early talkie era do have their own charm to anyone seeking them. All in all, a pretty good Bosko cartoon for anyone seeking all things Bosko. That's all, folks!
